Part II of twenty eleven was CHOCK. FULL. of fun stuff. I worked with Outstanding in the Farms and more lovely brides and grooms. I shot for a restaurant or two and did some food photos for Project by Project. I started working with Lowepro and had my first image on the Pictory Mag site.

I know I got a little bit overwhelming with the amount of photos I pulled out for the second half of the year (for November, there’s a shot from every single blog post! ah!) but in the end it was a combination of my new camera, a significant improvement in my own estimation of how well I’m shooting (aka I’m becoming a better photographer), and a whole bunch of fun things to shoot.

Thank you to all of you who stopped by my blog this year… and commented and shared with friends and stopped me when you saw me to say you liked looking at the photos… I had more friends from the interwebs than I ever thought possible and it meant so much. I started this blog back in 2009 (!!!) because I felt like photography didn’t mean much if nobody saw the photos. It has served more than that purpose and been worth every moment.

Thank you thank you thank you!!!

I’ll be back in the new year with all the excitement that a new year brings… and with all the photos that come from new adventures.

Until then, I wish you all a very very happy new year! :D
